(i-act) for Managers

Monday 25th April 10.00am – 13.30pm, online


This employer-focused course has been designed to help line managers better support their employees’ mental health in the workplace and is accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

It will help line managers to:

• Understand and identify the signs of common mental health problems

• Intervene early to minimise the impact on the employee and the business

• Support employees with mental health problems more effectively

Focusing on practice not policies, the course aims to equip line managers to spot the signs and support team members experiencing poor mental health by better understanding mental health problems, improving skills and increasing confidence in having conversations around mental health.

What the course will cover:

• Introduction to mental health and common mental health problems

• Mental health – what affects staff and volunteers at work?

• Understanding the workplace triggers for stress and mental health problems

• How to support people living with mental health problems

• How to have conversations about mental health, including handling disclosure and managing return to work

• Looking after your own and others’ mental health

The course is also suitable for Directors, HR, Occupational Health, trade union and other staff representatives who want to increase their knowledge and awareness of mental health in the workplace.

To book a place, or for further information, please contact Sandra Vaughan on 01384 685061 or by Wednesday 12th April. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
